Ahh, Ashley Jensen makes me weak at the knees, she's a lovely creature. It's on topic!

You make a good point, but I would have to disagree. This could be scripted, but it's still "real" to me. The thing with Ricky Gervais, and why I think "The Office" and "Extras" did so well, is that he does seem real. The only real reason that I'm such a huge fan of his, is because of that.
That speech could have been scripted, he could be 'acting' but to me, I think he's saying what he really feels. I think he wrote that script from how he really feels, so therefore I think it's actually a wonderful example of a TV personality expessing real feelings.

Your comment is kind of ironic, as this video clip is from Gervais' TV show, Extras. It's a scripted, acted programme, and whilst it is possible that these reflect Gervais' genuine thoughts about the cult of celebrity, it's not really the best of example of a TV personality expressing 'real' feelings.

So good, so good. We need more people in television to express feelings that are real. We need more people in media and the mainstream to say things that are real. Money means nothing if people feel nothing.

Ricky Gervais Is Brilliance

One of my favorite moments in tv, using the mainstream platform to say something REAL.
